Vodafone Oman and Ericsson 5G SA are testing mobile calls

Telecom operators Vodafone Oman and Ericsson have held a trial call to launch separate 5G voice and data services for Vodafone subscribers in the Sultanate.

The new voice-over-radio (voNR) proof-of-concept (POC) call over a stand-alone 5G network is part of a stand-alone (SA) network development project by both operators.

By deploying Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G core and IP multimedia subsystem technology, the POC demonstrated how the mobile network can improve voice quality.

The Vodafone network’s ability to deliver 5G-specific voice and communications services to both consumers and businesses was also demonstrated using an experimental terminal that will later be replaced by commercial terminals produced by Vodafone partners.

Unlike off-the-shelf 5G networks, stand-alone 5G networks are not based on existing 4G networks and technologies, but instead connect 5G radios to the underlying cloud 5G network, allowing flexibility and speed to meet current and future customer needs, according to Ericsson.

“These developments are important steps on the road to the future, enabling us to support the data requirements that can enable all the cutting-edge technologies, from real-time virtual reality and augmented reality to driverless cars and the latest advances in health.” care while improving quality of life on the road,” said Stelios Savvides, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone Oman.

“Through Vision 2040, Oman is entering a new phase of growth. Mobile technology will play a huge role in this journey and with our advanced communication technologies we aim to help Oman realize the advanced digital economy mandated by Vision 2040, said Abdullah Al Balushi, Country Manager, Ericsson Oman.
